Tidal Basin is the first post-launch update for Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, and is part of Invasion: Battle for D.C., the first free post-launch update that includes upcoming releases of Operation Dark Hours, the first 8-player raid in the history of The Division, and a brand new Specialization.

As part of the endgame and post-launch first philosophy of Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, Invasion: Battle for D.C. brings new challenges and content. Players face a new challenge in encountering Tidal Basin, a new stronghold held by the Black Tusk Faction, and home to some of the most powerful enemies in the game.

Upon completion of Tidal Basin Stronghold, players will be able to advance to World Tier 5 and unlock the possibility to obtain gear scores 450-500. Upon reaching World Tier 5, weekly invasions will be happening with the Black Tusk taking control over selected main missions and strongholds in the city. Invasion: Battle for D.C. will also be introducing a new Heroic difficulty setting. There will also be new exotic weapons; Pestilence, and Nemesis, as well as new gear sets: True Patriot, Hardwired, and Ongoing Directive.

As part of the update, all players will also be able to access the new PvP map, Fort McNair. Players will also be able to collect outfits inspired by the enemy factions, as well as new masks and weapon skins in the Invasion Apparel Event.

Operation Dark Hours, an 8-player raid that will test the teamwork of the most experienced agents will be coming on April 25, 2019. There’s more to come in future updates, but you can expect a brand new Specialization in the future.
